on the political trail than it was about getting answers. it kind of seemed a little bit more like "l.a. law" than it did a hearing, an investigation, but i do think there were important things that came out yesterday. namely, eric nordstrom, the top u.s. security official in libya months before the attack had asked the state department for additional security. those requests were denied. and the state department official who actually handled those requests, charlene lamb, said that she did. and i think another thing that came out that was kind of interesting is that even as the republicans were charging that there wasn't enough security at the post, democrats did make an interesting point that under the house-controlled congress, there was, under republican controlled congress, sorry, there was a lot of budget cuts in the state department and embassy security. >> why she -- glad you brought that up. yesterday, serious accusations about not having enough assets and resources in place to protect our people. soledad o'brien asked right here on cnn, didn't you vote to cut the funding for embassy secu

virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida ha. the officer in this case can probably say he was -- he felt he was in danger of his life and he was standing his ground and shooting. i'm betting as this proceeds you may see that law we heard so much about in this case in florida rear it's ugly head in alabama. >> the officer involved in the shooting has been put on administrative leave until the investigation is complete. >>> documentary filmmaker ken byrnes is defying a subpoena issued by the city of new york over his latest film "central park 5." it's a move mee about the five men exonerated in the 1989 central park jogger rain case. they want his outtakes, but burns wants the investigators to prove they need them. susan candiotti has more. >> this documentary, the latest project of ken burns, whose daughter is co-director, telling the story of five black and latino teenagers. they were convicted of raining and brutally beelting a white female jogger in new york's central park in 1989. >> it was a huge media story. there was a lot of coverage, but everything got it wrong at

today, brooke, this was a really politically charged hearing. it reminded me more of kind of l.a. law and a cross examination than really trying to, you know, let the state department make their explanation, whether you believe it or not, whether you believe in the end their explanations or not, cutting off the witnesses a lot, a lot of grandstanding by some members of the committee and i think what is really going to happen is i don't necessarily know if this investigation by the oversight committee is going to be the final word in what happens with this investigation, there is also an independent review board appointed by secretary of state hillary clinton, stellar people whose integrity and credibility is beyond reproach in washington and around the world are going to ask the same exact questions of these witnesses and will then make attack and then i think the american people will try to piece all of this together, and see what happened whether it could have been prevented, and what can be done, most importantly, brooke, what could be done next time to make sure that this doesn't
investigation. the filmmaker refuse to share outtakes citing shield laws. >> we believe we are protected under the shield laws as journalists and we don't think it's fair for the government to intrude in our research. >> reporter: a lawyer for the city says the film isn't journalism because it advocates for the five. in a statement, the city says, quote, if the plaintiffs truly want an open airing of the facts, they should encourage the filmmakers not to hide anything. the filmmakers claim the documentary sticks to the facts. what do you make of the city trying to go after the outtakes for this film? >> the city needs to stop dragging their feet. i don't think they would find anything other than what they already know, that we were innocent and this is just going to continue to further restate that. >> reporter: yusef says no matter the outcome, he may never fully escape his nightmare that started in in park. susan candiotti, cnn, new york. >>> the world watches cape canaveral, florida. live pictures. look at that. i love looking at space pictures. it's not quite up there yet. this launch is a

, well, no one else can either. instead of providing more money and man power to enforce the law, many politicians across the country are upping the speed limit big time. according to the governor's highway safety association seven states, kansas, kentucky, maine, ohio, pennsylvania, texas and virginia have increased speed limits to as high as 85 miles per hour on certain roads. maybe you're saying it is about time. consider this. there is no doubt excessive speed kills. if you have a need for speed, highway 130 near austin, texas, is where you have to be. later this fall posted legal speed limit 85. >> it is the highest posted speed limit on the whole western hemisphere, right? it is really pretty neat. >> an anomoly? not by a long shot. according to the insurance institute for highway safety, 35 states have raised speed limits to 70 miles per hour or higher, and no one is more aware of that than long distance truckers like anthony frederick, and frankly, it scares him. >> doing 85 miles an hour, all they're doing is asking for more accidents and more deaths, that's about it. they say
